Dune Messiah

{4.5/5} “If you need something to worship, then worship lifeĀ — all life, every last crawling bit of it! We’re all in this beauty together!”

Dune Messiah by Frank Herbert, published in 1969

Paul Maud’dib has been Emperor for 12 years. Many are happy with his reign, and a few are conspiring against him. Some think of him as a god, because of his ability to see the future. Paul is desperately trying to avoid the terrible things he sees coming. It’s a short book but there’s lots in it. There’s no setup — it assumes you’ve read Dune. If you have read Dune, you’ll want to read this one too.

This is the second time I’ve read it.

I previously reviewed the first novel in this series, Dune.
